This page provides an overview and summary of the key differences between Alma's built-in functionality and Leganto to help college libraries decide on the best solution for their own institution.

Alma includes built-in functionality for course resource list management. Leganto is an additional course resource list solution from Ex Libris that integrates with Alma and a college learning management system. The built-in course list functionality can be used in Alma with no additional cost. There is an additional subscription fee and software agreement for Leganto.
